I hope that you will be joining us for our next service in this Holy Week, Good Friday. We’ll remember Jesus’ final acts with his disciples, hear about his betrayal and arrest, and hear the final words Jesus spoke from the cross. In some ways, it’s a difficult service to sit through because we don’t necessarily like to hear about suffering and death. But it’s a necessary service. Because we can’t get to Easter Sunday without going through Good Friday.
This service will be in person, and outdoors, as well as live-streamed. If you’ll be joining us in the parking lot, dress accordingly. We’ll be outside for about 45 minutes. Bring your own chair or a blanket to sit on. Please wear your mask and maintain physical distance between yourself and other family units. The service will include an opportunity to hear how Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, and then in remembrance, have our hands washed. We’ll celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion together, just like Jesus shared the bread and the cup with his disciples. And we’ll hear the final messages Jesus spoke from the cross, those messages we’ve come to call “the seven last words” of Christ. We’ll leave that outdoor service as the sun is beginning to set, the beginning of darkness, to ponder all that we have seen and heard.
A recording of the livestream will be available in our sermon library after the service is over.
